Singer Anupa Jalota is holding himself very busy in the course of the lockdown. Whereas his Bhajans are being performed throughout houses in India and overseas, Anup has joined fingers with 210 different singers for what we will ‘safely’ think about the final word lockdown music.
Shedding gentle on the grand undertaking, Anup Jalota, who’s the unofficially designated Bhajan Samrat of Hindustan, says, “The concept for the music got here from a number of brainstorming and jamming periods on phone and video conferencing. It’s a music titled ‘Jayatu Jayatu Bharatam’. It’s composed by Shankar Mahadevan and the phrases are written by Prasoon Joshi. Aur mazey ki baat yeh hai ke iss gaane mein 211 gaaayak hai.
Jee haan, there are 211 of us singing in this historic music. I’m completely happy to tell you that Asha Bhosleji has additionally sung with us, and what a privilege to have her enthusiastic vocal presence at her age. She is extremely motivating. All of us sang our strains from our houses which had been then merged into one free-flowing stream of collective feelings,” says Anup who feels music has the ability to heal throughout these troubled instances.
“All of us want hope. All of us have to imagine in that daybreak after a darkish night time. Our music ‘Jayatu Jayatu Bharatam’ will hopefully present that hope,” says Jalota.
All of the proceeds from this historic music will go to needy singers. Says Anup, “The music is an initiative of the Indian Singers Rights Affiliation. A lot is completed for lyric writers by the Indian Performing Rights Society Ltd. However nothing is completed for singers. We really feel it’s time we did one thing for our fellow-singers specifically at a time like this when many singers are jobless.”
